Being a parent is not easy! And with so much information, opinions and (unsolicited) advice coming your way, it can make you second guess every decision you make. It’s natural for parents to feel anxious about their baby’s development, even if it appears to be on track.
As Specialist Paediatric Physiotherapists, we are passionate about supporting and educating parents on your baby’s development to help you make informed decisions and advocate for your baby or child’s needs with confidence.
A baby grows and changes rapidly during their first year and your little one will reach their milestones at their own pace. What is common for one baby, may differ for another and although there are some typical age ranges when advances happen, it is natural for different babies to reach milestones at different ages.
These sessions are suitable for parents who may have some mild concerns, as well as parents who have no concerns at all about their baby, but just want some peace of mind that their child’s development is progressing as it should. They are also invaluable in providing some guidance for strategies to encourage development at home.
We are strong promoters of early intervention, and highly discourage the very outdated “wait and see” approach! Additionally, we want to show parents how to be proactive when it comes to their children’s development.
